Double Time

Here's a little secret about me....I LOVE LOVE the giant cups for Target fountain drinks! Love them!! So much so that I wash and re-use them when running errands. I need access to liquids at all times. I am always always thirsty. (Thus I need to tinkle every 20 minutes, too!) They are giant and fit into any cup holder and I just love them. I know, how uncool. I should use one of those Nalgene bottles. Well I have some similar water bottles but I don't like them. You have to unscrew the top which I find very annoying and unsafe while driving. And there isn't a straw. I love a straw. So while I have several of the supposedly cool water bottles, I wash and re-use my six or so large Target cups that have been purchased on "quick trips for just one thing but somehow I left with an entire cart full" to Tar-jay. Sometimes I pilfer a few extra lids and straws because those just don't last that long. I know I should feel total shame, but the truth is that I just don't. I mean, it's all in the spirit of re-using something that still has use. And they are just the perfect giant size to fill up with water and add one of those little drink mix packet thingies and ice and run out the door.


So last week, I made yet another wonderful discovery about my beloved and cheap-o large plastic Tar-jay cups. My ice cream cozies fit them perfectly!! No more chilly hands. Oh and they keep the ice from melting too.





So not only do I gallivant about town with my constant companion of a red plastic cup but now it also sports a snazzy ice cream/newly discovered Target cup cozy. And I don't even feel any shame. Though I totally know I should!


Do y'all have any quirky habits like my red Target cup obsession?

I keep the McCafe cups from McDonald's and wash/reuse to fuel my iced coffee addiction (I make my own now at home)!

I should "borrow" some lids too because you are right, they don't last long!

I was just thinking about this earlier today...glad I am not the only one with this strange habit :) xoxo

too funny - at least you recycle the cup :) I used to always just buy a new one from a gas station/Target during errands. I bought a large Tervis Tumbler with a lid recently, and have found that I love this thing - it goes everywhere with me. In fact, when I show up for work without it, the little girl thinks something is wrong!

I can't pass up a cookbook. Periodically, I take a dozen or so to Half Price Books, only to come home with armloads more. I might have a problem.

Miss Sweet Tea- I'm so glad I am not alone! And actually, the cup in the photo has iced coffee in it. Because hello, it's only pennies to make it at home!

This is too funny, but I too can't leave the house without a liquid to sip on! I always tote my liquid of choice around in a Camelbak water bottle. I did a post on it a while back and seriously, it is the best water bottle ever. It has a straw and everything. You should check it out!

I completely understand - I have a sigg water bottle that I take everywhere. It just fits in the cup holder of my car, which is amazing because I always need to have water with me. I love the polka dot holder - very preppy chic!

OMG- Completely something I do. Always gotta have a beverage with me. Hee-hee

This cracked me up! I do the same thing with my Chick-fil-a Cups! Only with them being styrofoam I feel like my REUSE is limited.
